"Tubs of Fun" and the "Giant Banana"

Man Loses Life Savings Playing Carnival Game, Wins Giant Banana


One man never imagined he would spend his life savings on a giant stuffed banana with dreadlocks. Henry Gribbohm, 30, lost $2600 – his entire savings – on a game called Tubs of Fun at a Manchester, NH., carnival. He wanted to win an Xbox Kinect (retail value of around $100), but quickly lost $300 on the game when the balls he tossed, bounced out of the tubs. Instead of cutting his losses, he went home to get the rest of his savings, which he lost as well in a few rounds of double or nothing.
Comment: He could have bought one for $ 149. Image below

  1. Frankly I've made some bad purchases in life. But never this bad!
